Welcome to Trinity Lutheran in Bradenton, FL!

Welcome to Trinity Lutheran Church, Bradenton FL! 

      We delight that you have found us on "the web!" 
      Please join us as we begin an exciting, new, online Faith Formation opportunity this week. For eight weeks - October and November - we will study the "Stories Jesus Tells," diving into 8 parables of Jesus. 
      Please select the distinctive category below that best describes your household, and click on the Week number you are ready to study together to download the PDF for each week's study and activities.  We will add a new story and study each week.
      We envision all ages taking part in this program of the "Stories Jesus Tells" at home, even connecting adults across households if you do not have another adult to be together with in your own home.
      As we all join in this experience, we expect the Holy Spirit will be up to some amazing things!

Households with:

Preschool to 2nd Grade
Elementary-aged Children
Confirmands - 6th-9th Grade
High School Youth
Adult Study

You're Invited to Weekly Worship!

Outdoor Worship:

Join us Sundays at 9am for outdoor worship in the Memorial Garden area. You may participate in parked cars or, if you bring a lawn chair, spaced physically distanced in the grass. If the lawn area is already full, please stay in your car and tune into our FM station on your radio. Aside from staying home and watching worship online, this remains the safest worship opportunity we offer!

Indoor Worship:
We follow CDC guidelines regarding wearing of face coverings and social distancing. Currently all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, may enter for worship properly wearing a mask or face covering. Trinity staff continues to wear masks. Seating will remain physically distanced. 

  • Contemporary worship, Saturdays at 5:30pm.   
  • Traditional worship, Sundays at 11am.     

Conversations before and following worship are to take place outside the building. Thank you for continuing to care for the safety of others and yourself during these times.

Note: Indoor worship services are also livestreamed on our Facebook page (@TLCbradenton) and our YouTube channel.

Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther shared some still applicable advice when he and his people were dealing with a critical health crisis: "I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence."
